Arthur breaks down the book of Jonah in the first three weeks of the book and you really do learn quite a lot, while the final week is spent studying Jude. The first week definitely grabbed my attention, although I don’t do all of the highlighting and coloring as I’m not really that kind of person, I got a lot out of it just by underlining keywords and marking the “5 W’s and an H” (who, what, when, where, why, and how).
What would’ve made this book better would be if it had more room to write down all of your notes within the book making it more like a workbook. I didn’t like having to have a separate notebook to write everything down as I like having everything all together. I also felt like the pacing of this book was a little rushed, some daily chapters were quite lengthy and involved. The book seemed to end very nicely in Jonah and so she could’ve spread Jonah out just a little bit longer without adding Jude. Even though the book of Jude is short and very insightful, ending a workbook in the same chapter you started in seems more complete and less like adding just to get a page count.
Overall, this was a pretty good Bible study and would recommend for those wanting to get a deeper understanding of the Bible.

Towards the beginning I was reading 2-3 days (or chapters) at a time and still not getting much out of it. It was going much too slow for me. What I do love is that Ms. Arthur doesn't give away any answers. She sends you on what I'm calling "Bible Errands". She gives you an errand to do in your own Bible (or in the selected Bible text in the back of the book) and then suggests what to do with what you find to draw your own conclusions. It felt great on the days when I found some profound truth all on my own... but then it was often 3 days later before I found another one. Some days she was totally excited about something that I just didn't see, and that made me feel a little inadequate and very frustrated - especially when she asked me to apply it.
At the same time that I bought this, I bought the New Inductive Study Bible, and it has much of the same information - only while Ms. Arthur's book drags it out at an unbelievably slow pace, the study Bible lists it all up front and it's almost too much to take in. I'd love to find a book about inductive Bible study that was somewhere in between the two.
I haven't decided if I'll recommend this book yet or not. I've contemplated using it to teach my kids about inductive Bible study - they should handle the pace of this book well. Or it might (and I emphasize the might) be good for someone who has zero experience with inductive Bible study, but even then, it might be best for them to go through it with someone who has just so that on days when they don't connect the dots they don't get discouraged.
You will learn how every chapter relates to the book and how to understand everything within its context and you will discover all this for yourself and truly understand the Word of God.
This method will enable you to study any and all books of the Bible for yourself.
